Welcome to Chesham Bridge Club

Welcome to Chesham Bridge Club.  Play has been suspended temporarily at the Town Hall but the Committee will review the situation at the end of February 2022.



Face to Face Bridge suspended

Regretfully, we have made the decision to suspend Face to Face Bridge at the Town Hall with immediate effect (28 October 2021). We have been subsidising the rent of the Community Hall from club funds since the beginning of August, but we can no longer afford to continue with only two or three tables. The Committee will review the situation at the end of February and we may be able to resume in March if we get enough support from the members.  In the meantime, you are invited to pay Online Bridge organised by our friends at Ashley Green Bridge Club, on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Wednesday mornings.  Please see their website for more information.



Instructions for joining BBO tournaments

Here are the 6 easy steps to gaining access to an AGBC tournament. Note that the events, on Tuesday evening, start at 7.15 pm and Wednesday morning, start at 10.00. You should be able to register up to two hours before that time.

Step 1     Log onto BBO using your BBO Name and Password. You will be taken to the BBO Home page called Bridge Base Online Home.

DO NOT CLICK ON CASUAL as Online Tournament events are not found under Casual.

Step 2     Click on Competitive. This is in the section headed PLAY OR WATCH BRIDGE and you will be taken to the Competitive screen.

Step 3     Click on All Tournaments in the section headed TOURNAMENTS. This will take you to the Tournaments screen.

Step 4     Search for “AG” and click/tap on it. 

Step 5     Invite your partner using their BBO User Name. Your partner should also be logged on when you do this. 

Step 6     Your partner will receive your invitation to join you in the Tournament and should accept it.

Once you have completed Step 6, do not expect to be immediately transported to a table. Nothing at all will happen until the event starts. If you wish, you can log off now and return to BBO later but make sure you are logged on again in time for the event.

You both must be logged on to BBO 10 minutes before the start of the tournament.

If you do not have a partner for the event, you will find a partnership desk in the same screen where you invite your partner. You can enter your (BBO) name here. If anyone else has done the same, you will see who is there looking for a partner and you can invite them or they can invite you.

Tips for playing within the time limits: There is a clock at the top of the screen, so you can keep an eye on the time remaining. If you play too slowly, you will be timed out and awarded an average for the unfinished hand. However, The Director does have some discretion and if you appeal, he may be able to adjust the score if he thinks you were going to make the contract.

Please note that if you can see you are going to win all the remaining tricks, use the CLAIM button. This speeds up the game for everyone.

The results will be uploaded to the Ashley Green website soon after the session has finished. 

Enjoy your Bridge!
